It’s been said that a whole wave of punk was misclassified in the 90’s, called Grunge instead. Taking punk’s aggression and bolting to the experimentation of the post-punk movement while being unafraid to infuse moments of heavy influences, the evidence left behind in those discographies tells the tale. Southern California’s Sin + Passion arrive on their 3-song debut 7-inch in 2020.
“For Those In Misery” offers up a reminder of both things that have been and issuing a statement on what is now. Sin + Passion alternate between dreamy explorations of post-punk echoes and ominous hardcore punk pinned between current day post-hardcore and the thundering heavy bands of their time.
Threaded between these bookend tracks is “Pistol,” which could be passed off as a lost B-track to any of the heavier Seattle bands from twenty years ago. This is just a start, a way point on their journey; an introduction, if you will, of what Sin + Passion have to offer.
